    Top Notch Wedding Reception Venue

    We want to say a huge THANK YOU to the Phoenix for hosting our wedding reception. Abby, our coordinator, made the planning process so seamless. Often times just checking in to see how we are doing and was able to guide us in decision making based on our preferences and past experience for our big day. We also enjoyed the food tasting, Abby really made the experience special. We had our reception in the ballroom with the cocktail hour on the second floor. The incredible staff was professional and attentive to us and our guests as well. We had so many guests compliment the staff in the days to follow and rave about their dinner too. Thank you again for making our wedding day the best day ever. We would highly recommend the Phoenix.

    The Phoenix- Cincinnati, Ohio's reply:

    Janna, thank YOU for choosing us to host your beautiful reception! It was such a pleasure working with you on all of the planning and serving your wonderful guests. Wishing you all the best, and congratulations!

    Utterly Breathtaking

    Abby and Lilly were fabulous to work with! They were very responsive and answered all my questions. I would highly recommend The Phoenix as the ambiance of the building brought out vision to life. The food and service were outstanding. I couldn't have imagined a more perfect evening.

    Incredible food, terrific team

    We hired The Phoenix to cater our wedding reception at a venue a little over an hour from Cincy. I planned our wedding from out of town, and for a venue in northern Kentucky. Lilly Klein and the entire staff at The Phoenix were phenomenal. Leading up to our big day, Lilly was always quick to respond to any email question I had and also very flexible and accommodating through all the changes we made in the course of delaying our wedding for a full year.

    We made several changes to the menu to make it more Covid friendly, such as moving our reception outdoors and lowering our guest count. They also had to accommodate various dietary restrictions of our guests. Phoenix executed all of this perfectly.

    Not to mention that the food was absolutely amazing. I seriously do not know how they pulled it off. But we had 100% raves about the food -- and this includes some definite "foodies" from NYC, Switzerland, LA, I am 1000% pleased with the entire experience. I highly recommend Phoenix to cater your event.

    The Phoenix- Cincinnati, Ohio's reply:

    Thank you, Beckey, for your kind words! We are so glad to hear that you not only enjoyed working with Lilly, but also stand by our food. It's our goal to make your special day all the more memorable and it sounds like we succeeded here!

    Your words mean the world to us! Do you mind we if we use this review in a future social media post?

A Steve Bender Entertainment, INC. A Steve Bender Entertainment, INC. Wedding DJs

I highly recommend the Phoenix and their staff. As a vendor who sees hundreds of events every year, I can honestly say you will not find a higher quality venue or experience. All of the staff from sales to the actual servers for your celebration will be top notch and give you outstanding customer service. I've been providing DJ Entertainment, Photo Booths, Lighting and more for over 39 years, and many of our most memorable events were at the Phoenix. I would have no problem giving them Five Stars!
